Mastering Notes
-- Various drop outs patched with SBD (shnid=9392).
-- Various drop outs patched to mono.
-- d2t0{6,7} - Transition between "Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad" and "One More Saturday Night" patched with SBD (shnid=9392).

-- d2t04 - "King Solomon's Marbles" as listed is based on the sub-track titles from the CD version of "Blues For Allah", but just tracked here as one song. Title listings of this instrumental found on both commercial releases and legally traded sources are, to say the least, inconsistent. Whatever the case, we reckoned it was paramount to continue the tradition of inconsistency.

Taper Talk
-- According to Bob Menke, "It was an overcast day and we got there early. About 8:30 in the morning. That is how we ended up about 10-15 feet from the stage. The mics were mounted on broom sticks (handheld) and they were split about 20 feet apart. The upfront vocals I believe are the product of a small (relative to PA speakers) speaker on the floor of the stage next to the right PA column. The vocals seem to be blasting from that speaker. Another very intersting point is the fact that the Jefferson Starship opened and their sound from the same PA absolutely sucked. Nothing approaching the clarity and sound quality the Dead got from the same system."

Great show you can hear the subtle transition of sound from the 74 sound heading toward the 76 , hard to explain with words but it has good amount of the free form jamming from 73 74 that i love and also has an overall tightness recognizable to me as heading for that tight 77 sound. This was also a date that the band was known to have taken some psychedelics. The Truckin' jam is one of a kind.

Subject: The Last Free Dead in the Park
Hard to remember the events of that day but we went down on the Fulton-5 from the hilltop at USF, a contingent of Deadhead Don's. It was my first year away at school in the City. We had heard the rumors about a free show but we weren't sure. Remember trying to get back stage but were met with some resistance from "security" as the Hells Angels called themselves. Scary looking beasts. Starship really struggled with the sound system. We thought the show would be ruined. But when the Dead took the stage everything fell into place. Consider myself very lucky to have been there.

Wow! To hear this show again after all these years. This was my second Dead show and my first west coast show. This is the show that made me a Deadhead. This was what we called at the time "the last free show" It was magic. During Franklin's Tower when the crowd was singing "roll away the dew" the fog lifted and the sun came out. Magic.

MOTB strikes again! Historic '75 recording from the of the few concerts the Dead played in '75. Download it!
Reviewer: Grateful_leDead - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - September 7, 2008
Subject: '75 Bliss
Wasn't at this show but this is an incredible listen. Excellent audience recording and especially for the seventies. Combine that with the mastering job; don't hesitate, download this show. You won't be disappointed with the quality of the recording or the playing by the boys! Jerry sparkles. One *star* short of a perfect five since there are the mentioned dropouts, slight imperfections and those are nicely handled.
